SPOTLIGHT: Rev. Mark Moore on What a Faithful Church Body Looks Like

Written by Jenna Smith

As a pastor, what can you do to keep the children of your congregation from being tainted by the humanism of government schools? Start your own K-12 school. Taking it one step further, what can you do to ward off the indoctrination of very young children before it ever has a chance to take root? Start an open enrollment preschool. Our guest this week on Spotlight, Rev. Mark Moore of Belmont Bible Church in Downers Grove, is in the process of realizing both of these goals.

Praise God! Belmont Christian School is already in operation and Belmont Christian Preschool is scheduled to open for the 2022-2023 school year!

Rev. Moore, David Smith, and Monte Larrick talk about the advantages and blessings of a Christian education, as well as the ministry opportunities a church-based school brings to the host congregation. They also discuss the impact of COVID-19 on churches, the scriptural imperative to meet together as the body of Christ, accountability, and stewardship.

Please listen to this week’s podcast and then share with your like-minded friends!

Pastor Moore is the senior pastor of Belmont Bible Church. He also is the host of Overcoming Through Grace which can be heard weekdays at 5:30 a.m. on AM 1160 Hope For Your Life.
